Mara and Tim had a beautiful September wedding, with a ceremony at Portland Head Light in Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine and their reception at Grace Restaurant in Portland, Maine. It was an honor to be a part of their love story and we are thrilled to share the details of their day, accompanied by these amazing photos from the team at Captured in Moments.
Mara started her day with some pampering, including hair from Kerry Cranton and makeup from Kim Schultz. Mara took her time getting ready and the results were fabulous! Then she made her way over to nearby Portland Head Light for her first look with Tim.
Tim could not have been happier to see his bride at the first look! Afterward, the couple joined with family and close friends for portraits and took some amazing shots. Then they were ready to sign the Ketubah and start the ceremony. Guests gathered in a park overlooking the lighthouse and close friends and family held up the traditional Jewish Chuppah.
After the glass was smashed to signal the end of the ceremony, guests cheered and all joined in for a group photo including the bride and groom. Guests then boarded buses to Grace Restaurant to get the party started. Grace was decorated with personal touches, including floral centerpieces made by the couple and a framed photo of their wedding date that guests could sign as a guestbook. Mara and Tim also put together a boat filled with local salt water taffy for guests to enjoy. Cocktail hour included a touching toast from the bride's dad, and then guests filed upstairs for some dancing. The bride and her dad surprised everyone with a choreographed dance to "Putting' on the Ritz" before the groom had an emotional dance with his mom. Then the floor opened up and everyone joined in for a rousing hora! Guests ate and danced the night away with Mara and Tim and tunes from DJ Numuzik.
Our most heartfelt congratulations to the Goulds as they start their new life together! It was our pleasure to be a part of making sure your day went great.
